Same 11 bar the hapless PEHSon does not look like he needs a break from football.
He helped us get the only goal in our last 2 games.
It is essential he starts.
With Morecambe as our next game and 3 full days rest after yesterday IMO coach Conte will field at least 10 of those who started v Watford, probs the same XI.
Why? Personally I'd quite like a draw there as I detest both*, and who knows, one of them might even collapse enough for us to catch them (dreaming now I know), but Liverpool smashing them up wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing for our upcoming game. There's this theory that when clubs get a good beating they turn up with 'greater powers' for the next game, but more often than not it's a myth. I'd much rather play a team going through a bad run of form than a good run of form. If Liverpool beat them today, Lukaku has a stinker meaning that both he and Tuchel get pelters from their fans, and the whole feeling at their place is one of unease and concern, that is more likely to be good news for us than bad.The last thing we need is for Liverpool to do them tomorrow
